I ordered a 5 lb quantity of these beauties last year, and there was no going back to waiting until they come out at the grocery store. They're deliciously tart, tender skins, perfect in my breads and muffins.. makes an awesome chutney, too! I live in south Arkansas and even in the winter it can be unusually warm. These arrived at my house in optimum condition. When I run out I will definitely be ordering these again! Thanks localharvest!
